Terex Ecotec partners with Eriez on new metal separator for organics and bottom ash
Terex Ecotec has introduced the TMS 320 metal separator, offering operators application flexibility, increased production rates and serviceability for application in metal recovery from compost, biomass, IBA (Incinerated Bottom Ash) and waste.
In partnering with Eriez, the TMS 320 incorporates the RevX ST22 eddy current separator and rare earth drum magnet. The RevX ST22 eddy current separator has a premium 22-pole neodymium rotor which spins at just 3000RPM. This rotor is encased in an ultra-thin carbon fibre shell, and a thin but durable PVC belt, ensuring that the intense field produced by the ST22 is fully employed to provide the most effective separation results. The 2m wide high-strength neodymium radial pole magnet is utilized for optimum iron recovery.
According to Terex Ecotec, the TMS 320's efficient drum magnet and eddy current rotor, combined with good material flow, ensures accurate material separation. The TMS 320 metal separator offers quick and easy set-up and will be ready to process in minutes with no tools required. Plus, an intuitive push button control panel, variable speed drum magnet and eddy current belt, combined with a splitter system that offers accurate real time adjustment, enables the operator to easily configure the machine to suit a wide range of applications.
Designed to provide operators with easy service access, all conveyors are built to a modular design allowing each one to be removed independently for ease of maintenance. The splitter system can be moved away from the eddy current unit to provide unobstructed access to both the splitter system and eddy current rotor. This feature also enables the TMS 320 to fold within a 3m wide transport width and places it as a market leader.
Being electrically driven the TMS 320 can be powered by either the onboard gen set or using mains electricity supply. This flexibility provides the end user with reduced operating costs, fuel usage, emissions and noise levels. The TMS 320 is available in both tracked and static variants. The tracked unit is fitted with heavy duty crawler tracks and offers good site mobility making it a capable solution for difficult terrain.
On January 1st, 2021, the Basel Convention's plastics waste amendments became effective in Canada. The amendments focus on the international movement of plastic wastes that may have limited recycling options or be more difficult to recycle. This change will likely be felt all along the supply chain, including collectors, processors, and exporters. If you export plastic waste for recycling or final disposal, or if you are an exporter of other scrap materials, including plastic, paper, or e-waste, you may be subject to Canada's Regulations, and a valid export or transit permit may be required.
